Crystal / Sphatik – Diamond Cut Mala
SPHATIK (also called as Quartz crystal) is a natural gemstone and has power to retain the energy of mantra chanting. According to Astrology, Sphatik (quartz) is related to Venus. It is a substitute of Diamond.
Quartz gems are popular among gem therapists as they produce electrochemical balance in the body and remove anxiety. Crystals harmonise the aura around us and removes the negative energy, gives peace of mind and coolness of body. It is beneficial for gaining knowledge of the past, present and future when used for concentration. Wearing a crystal mala ensures a sound and undisturbed sleep.
Sphatik in India, is regarded as an excellent medium for religious practices. Not only the Hindus, but the Christians and Muslims also use Crystal mala as a Japa Mala or Prayer Beads.
Buddhists and Hindus both use prayer beads. In Hinduism they are more commonly known as Japa, and in Buddhism they are more commonly known as Mala. There are usually 108 beads and a top bead known as the Guru Bead or Sumeru. Smaller numbers of beads can also be used and are usually known as Wrist Mala or Power Bead Bracelets because they are worn around the wrist, which is useful if you are travelling.
More than just beautiful adornment, malas are powerful and symbolic tools for meditation as crystals balance all the energy chakras while chanting mantras during meditation. The Beads are usually held and moved between the thumb and third finger until the mantras have been completed. When you reach the Guru Bead or Sumeru, you turn the beads around and go back the other way, rather than crossing over the top bead. The index finger never touches the beads because it represents Ego, which is an impediment to self-realization.
Why 108 beads? There are many reasons – 108 is a sacred number to the Eastern religions and traditions.
Each Bead is mindfully knotted with love, one at a time on a durable nylon silk cord for extra strength and durability. This Mala features all 108 beads divided by markers into sections of beads that follow selected pattern and finished with a Silk Tassel. The tassel symbolizes consciousness and oneness
Sphatik beads are also known to protect and heal negative influences.
They can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet throughout the day as a reminder to be mindful or as a reminder for a personal mantra connected to the type of bead or stone the necklace is made from.
